A Bariatric Surgery Support Group meeting is now being held at the Prendergast Library, 509 Cherry St. in Jamestown. It is being held the first Tuesday of each month from 6-7 p.m. in the Fireplace Room on the second floor. An elevator is available if needed. Also, there is free parking after 5 p.m.
The meetings are open to anyone who is in the process of having surgery, has had the surgery or is just thinking about having the surgery.
An attendance sheet will be sent to your doctor's office regardless of which doctor you go to or are planning to go to, along with a description of the program that was held that month. No medical questions will be answered at the meetings. Please contact your surgeon for those questions. There will be door prizes at each meeting.
There will be speakers for some of the meetings. A few examples are fitness instructors, dieticians, consignment stores, psychologists and people who have had the surgery.
Call 244-0293 for more information. The next meeting is June 3.
